First We Marched; Now We Organize!

If you’ve been asking what you can do to bring about change in our country, have I got an event for you!

It was a fabulous Women’s March last month! It’s estimated that at least 50,000-60,000 people marched in San Francisco. But, I wondered, what could we do to keep that energy going?  How coud we find ways to step it up to the next level and take action?

To begin to answer this question, I’ve been working with the OMNIA Institute for Contextual Leadership. 

OMNIA’s mission is to train leaders to build power,
so they can collaborate with diverse communities
for effective action for justice and peace.

OMNIA’s #StepItUp campaign will be holding day-long and half day-long training eventsin many locations around the country. Here’s the one I’m organizing:


Saturday, March 3: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 pm (lunch included with registration)
Ebenezer/herchurch
678 Portola Drive, San Francisco

WHO SHOULD COME?
Clergy and religious leaders of all traditions
Social entrepreneurs
Political and civic leaders
Educators and students

The event will be led by my friend and colleague, Rev. Dr. Shanta Premawardhana, Executive Director of OMNIA (and member of the board of directors for the Parliament of the World’s Religions). I recommend him highly! 

I am committed to having at least 30 people attend this first organizing training. Will you come? Can you bring one or two or more people with you?
